We entered the Arequipa branch of Museo de Pisco at 1700 hours and finally departed at 2000 hours! What a place! MdP would succeed in the US with flying colors since they’ve got it going on. The service is excellent with bilingual servers. The food...is “new Peru” as we call it. They play with traditional food and twist it oh-so slightly to make a new and interesting cuisine. The drinks are Pisco-based, of course, but so creative. Do NOT settle for their superb Pisco Sours, unless you plan on having another cocktail. Be sure to check the Fresca Espiritu, which has a dash oh house-made eucalyptus infusion. Wow! If you enjoy cocktails, this is your kind of place. We can’t know who your bartender will be, but they all are excellent. They measure their outrageously creative ingredients with care, decorate with a flair, and produce the most creative cocktails that we’ve ever had. We highly recommend this restaurant and bar. We sincerely hope that you try it with an open mind to a new experience.More

We discovered Museo Del Pisco on our first night in Arequipa and kept going back every night. The pisco sours were great and they had unique pisco drink creations that we tried too!

The best place in the Perú, definitely better than Cuzco. 100 hundred times. Elvis and Elard are the best bartenders, they look like sommeliers of the Pisco. If you want to learn everything about Pisco un English just ask to them! Don Amadeo Rules :)

In Cusco, we enjoyed Museo del Pisco so much that we went twice in three days. The cocktails were delicious, the food was amazing (especially impressive since this is a cocktail bar first), and the staff were friendly and hilarious. We expected the same experience...in Arequipa, but boy were we mistaken. We showed up on a slow Monday night. Ten minutes into the visit, we were the only folks at the venue. We first ordered drinks, which tasted alright, although they did have less foam and flavor than the Cusco version (a coca sour should not taste identical to a pisco sour!). We then ordered food, and that was a disaster. I ordered the same dish I’d previously had: butifarra del museo. Previously, I’d loved this sandwich. This rendition was one of the worst sandwiches I’ve ever had. It had more raw onions than ham (the Cusco version was bursting with flavorful meat), and the ham was way too salty. The fries arrived flaccid and at room temperature, sans any dipping sauce and with very inconsistent seasoning (some fries had way too much salt and pepper, while others had none at all). Meanwhile in Cusco, the fries were hot, crunchy, honey-glazed, and served with two dipping sauces. My husband’s Caesar salad had a ridiculously salty dressing and some hair in it as well. Another massive disappointment. The staff were completely disinterested in checking if we liked our drinks or food. They only returned to eagerly clear plates. Again, polar opposite of the Cusco experience where we were constantly checked up on. I was looking forward to checking out Museo Del Pisco in Lima as well, but I’ll be steering clear based on this experience. Seems like it’s a Cusco-only special experience.More

We went there to have an “apero” (cocktail and snack) and we were not disappointed. I can absolutely recommend the pisco sour. The best i drank on our trip so far! My boyfriend took a “cocktail Misty” which was perfect for those with a sweet...tooth. We shared a plate with cheese and a small mix of meat. Not really “Peruvian” cheap, but worth the money.More

This place is something special. It has great cocktails all involving the traditional Pisco with skilful barmen doing their tricks. The food here is good especially the burgers and the wings. Must try this place you won’t be disappointed!

You can find all the different kind of coctails made with pisco, appart from the classical pisco sour. A must in Arequipa!

This was a cool place- lots of pisco options. The drinks were very creative- I had the Dona Luca. I really enjoyed the drinks! Their menu is diverse and we got wings- they were good. Of course potatoes are on the menu and they were...good too. Our waitress was very nice. It's located just 2 blocks from the main square. it's a neat concept, theres 1 in Cusco as well. Well known place! High spot really, go for the drinks , sit at the bar. It's a cool set up to be able to try pisco in different forms and ways!More
